Art Should Make A Difference

Blog: #1 of 1 by Odd Jeppesen

December 29th, 2011 - 10:03 AM

Beginning today, Wednesday December 28 2011, 40% of the money I make from any sales will be donated to a drop-in center in Herning, Denmark. The center is a haven for the homeless, substance abusers, the emotionally ill and those who are just lonely. It's open 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

I want my art to make a difference.

What a wonderful idea and for a great cause. Everybody deserves a second chance, and the recovered need to be appreciated on their efforts to live a better life without drugs. I wish all the success, well-deserved for such a beautiful altruistic act.

Odd - I think that is an awesome thing that you are doing! I work for a non-profit... a food bank. We distribute food to shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens. Some of those organizations run entirely on volunteers. It's really amazing to see folks helping others directly, there is something to be said for that. Keep up the good work all the way around.

Odd, I agree with the others who spoke here about your kindness & generosity. You are a multi-talented, outstanding artist with a Heart of Gold. Bravo for you, Odd. Also thanks for your kind words about my amateurish art. I have fun with it, so that is the main idea. I often donate my art to local charities and I feel good when I do that. I feel as if I have been "paid" in something that money itself cannot pay me. Thanks again for all that you do to help those in need.
